How to Make Delicious Homemade Pound Cake will get you ready to impress everyone with these 8 techniques on making the best pound cake ever!
Pound cakes are delicious desserts that are easy to make at home. They’re often made with butter flavored Crisco stick, sugar, flour, eggs, and sometimes nuts.
Homemade desserts are so much better, have a lot more flavor and your family and guest will be asking for more. You can count on that!
The thing about my pound cake recipe is that you can make so many flavors out of it just besides vanilla. For example, chocolate marbled pound cake, coconut, strawberry, peanut butter, and many more flavors.
I have been baking cakes, cookies, pies, and many other things since I was twelve. So, I do have a few years of experience under my belt or apron should I say. My delicious homemade pound cake. I can’t wait until you try it.
Below you will find my 8 techniques for delicious homemade Pound Cake. Enjoy!
8 Techniques for Delicious Homemade Pound Cake
Please be sure you follow these techniques so that you will have the best baking experience ever! I know this is going to seem like a lot of steps, but once you get the hang of it, it will be a breeze!
1. Get Your Mixer
And the attachments that go with it. I suggest using the paddle for mixing up your cake. Go ahead and get your pan, you can use a Bundt pan or an Angel food cake pan.
2. Bundt Pan
Grease and flour the Bundt pan using either Pam with the flour in it or Bakers Joy. Pam works better for me. Get yourself a good Pound Cake recipe. I will be giving you one at the end of the posts.
3. Choose the Best Ingredients
Gather the ingredients listed in the recipe. This recipe calls for 8 ingredients: Shortening, Sugar, Eggs, Cake Flour, Salt, Soda, Buttermilk, and Vanilla.
4. Measure Out the Ingredient’s
Get your measuring cup(s) and measuring spoon(s) that you are going to need. Now you have all your ingredients together, start measuring them out as directed by the recipe. Now comes the fun part!
5. Mixing the Ingredients
Add the ingredients in the order they appear in your recipe and mix well. This is an especially crucial step to ensure that your cake comes out beautifully and is not a flop!
6. Prepared Pan
Now pour the prepared mix into the pan (Your batter will be thick). Making sure you get it as even as you can. I usually just give it a few little shakes to spread it out.
7. Bake the Cake
Place the pound cake into a preheated 350-degree oven. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. When you take the cake out of the oven place it on a cake rack and let it cool completely. For 5 minutes.
8. Check for Doneness
Check for doneness, I do this by inserting a toothpick in the thickest part of the cake. When it comes out clean it’s done. Cool on a cake rack for 5 minutes and then turn out on the cake rake and let it finish cooling and enjoy!
Store on a cake plate.
